Billie Eilish has shared a new live video for her single ‘Wish You Were Gay’. Check it out below.
Taken from her acclaimed debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’, the single now comes with footage of her show in London back in March – showing the young star both on stage and backstage, as well as interacting with fans.
“Her lyrics really relate to our generation more than like any artist I’ve heard before,” says one fan interviewed in the video.
Explaining the meaning of ‘Wish You Were Gay‘ earlier this year, Eilish said: “I wrote this song about a guy that really was not interested in me and it made me feel horrible.”
She continued: “So the song is called ‘Wish You Were Gay’, and that’s so not meant to be offensive in any way. It doesn’t mean that I wish he was like… it literally means I wish he was gay so that he didn’t like me for an actual reason, instead of the fact that he didn’t like me.”
Eilish will return to the UK to perform at Glastonbury festival in June, where her slot has been upgraded due to her runaway popularity.
“We’re currently moving her [on to The Other Stage] – she’s on John Peel at the moment but she’s much too big, really, for the slot,” said Glasto boss Emily Eavis. “It’s happened so quickly for Billie Eilish. It’s been such an amazing year. It really is going to be her summer.”
She added: “We are trying to give her a bigger stage where we can get a larger audience in there. So we are going to move her on to The Other Stage and we are just working out exactly where that’s going to be.”
Eilish will also perform on the Radio One Stage at Reading And Leeds festival this August.
